What's Up Wednesday!

On the last Wednesday of every month, I'll join some of my favorite bloggers for What's Up Wednesday!

Here is the question lineup!

1. What we're eating this week...

Monday - Cajun chicken strips, okra and rice.
Tuesday - I made a roast in the crock pot. I included carrots for Jake, but I absolutely hate carrots. I try them every once in a while to see if my taste buds have changed, but 25 years and counting and I still don't like carrots. We had mashed potatoes and peas. 
Wednesdays are usually out because I don't go home before church, so I'd rather spend that time with Jake and Carsen grabbing a bite to eat. 
Thursday - I'm trying this:

I'm going to throw the chicken in the crock pot tomorrow morning and I'll put the flatbread together once I get home and then bake it. Sounds yummy to me! I'll let you know how it is! 
Friday - Our church's Girl's Night Out (holla!), so I'll be going to a Japanese Steakhouse with the girls!

2. What I'm reminiscing about...

Normally, I find the posts like "share this if you have a daughter/son that you love" pretty cheesy, but my dad put up this super sweet post a few days ago and it brought tears to my eyes. It definitely gave me some good times to reminisce about.

"When I saw this I was immediately taken back in time.  Alexis, when I travelled through the years, I can only think of our times together. Catching fish at Chicken Hugheys ponds and all of those piranhas as you called them. Actually speckled perch. Us singing Jeremiah Was a Bull Frog on the way to work. Building your school science project. You being a cheerleader and playing softball for the Cowgirls. Remembering the pictures of Tom walking you across the football field for MCHS homecoming and the look on your face when Ben Killingsworth gave you his cell phone and you not knowing it was me. Thanks to Martin Gudz for capturing that special moment. There I was talking with you on your special night as MCHS Homecoming Queen all the way from Afghanistan. It didn't stop there, Your graduation from high school, University of Florida and even more. And, Now as I see a beautiful young woman who now has her own daughter I can see how God has truly blessed me. 

Alexis I Love You. You are such an awesome young woman whose abilities are unlimited. I pray God's many blessings on you, Jake and Carsen. 

3. What I'm loving...
I'm LOVING my new Beco Gemini carrier! It's so comfortable and I used it a ton this weekend from egg hunts to grocery shopping. This is the pattern I chose:

4. What we've been up to...
Enjoying this sweet girl! Last night before dinner, Jake was flying her around like an airplane as she held her arms out. It was the cutest thing!

5. What I'm dreading...

April Fool's Day...please no pranks. I always get nervous to be tricked!

6. What I'm working on...
Our church has been launching a new website and I'm still working on getting it perfect. At home, I'm working on teaching my girl how to eat from a spoon. Who knew it could be so hard?!

7. What I'm excited about...

Can I say lunch? Lunch is my jam.

8. What I'm watching/reading...
This is one of my favorite questions. I'm an entertainment enthusiast. I have been thinking about doing a whole post dedicated to this, so I'll give you the short answer. I have to stay caught up on these three shows:

I don't even want to talk about last week's episode. I'm still sad. :(

I'm still in the process of reading this book. It's so so good! I need to buckle down and get better at spending time reading.

9. What I'm listening to...

I listen to a lot of worship music and all of the best groups just came out with new albums, so they're pretty much on shuffle nonstop. Here are my favorites:

10. What I'm wearing...

My style is pretty simple. I've been wearing these converse so much. They're one of my favorites and go with so much.

11. What I'm doing this weekend...

We participate in Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, so I'll be spending a few hours there. As I mentioned before, Friday is girl's night out, so that night will be spent at dinner with the girls!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...

Good weather! Hopefully not too many rainy days even though it's April.

13. What else is new...

Not a whole lot is new around here!

14. What's my best spring cleaning tip...
Every month they add one question to the list. My tip is to PURGE! I love to get rid of things! There's nothing like seeing an organized closet and drawers with perfectly stacked clothes! 

Happy Wednesday! :) Today is our busiest day of the week, but still one of the best days!


  1. I love Elevation's new album! Your sweet girl is adorable! Isn't being a mama the best??

    1. Elevation is one of my favorites, for sure! Thank you! Being a mama is so much fun! Watching them learn new things is awesome. :)

  2. That post by your dad! 😭😭😭 I just bought Fervent and can't wait to start it!

  3. I love purging as well… and what a cutie you have!!
